THE NEW DEAL IN WHEAT,
A Formidable Proposition to be
Mot and Settled by
How Are We to Continue to Furnish the
Pood to Europe's Teem
ing Millions ?
The Great Wheat Producing Interests o'
the East Proving Dangerous Rivals
to the American Husbandman.
New York, April 1. The San In Its
Wall street column of yesterday con
tained the following: Everyoue says
that what we want now to revive general
business Is lower prices for wheat and
lower rates of transportation. They
hear that breadstuff's from other coun
tries can still be delivered In England
about live cents a bushel cheaper than
from tho United States, and they
think that all that Is wanted to
have our surplus wheat marketed
at once is to knock dowu these five
ceuts. They forget that Calcutta, Bombay,
Odessa, Elga, Taganrog, Sydney, Mel
bourne, and every other wheat shipping
port ou the face of the globe have every
day New York, Chicago, and Sau Fran
cisco quotations reflgured Into shillings
and pence, with freight, interest, and oth
er charges added. If our prices go down
or up, theirs do the same. Liverpool and
London take care of this arbitrary record,
and not a fraction of a cent is overlooked
In the relative values of the different
grades of wheat at different ports. If
our Chicago gamblers are so conceited
and ignorant as not to pay attention to
the condition of distant markets, the
great European graiu speculators (the
majority of whom are Greeks and Jews)
belong to quite a different school of bu.-i-uess
men. There is no exaggeration in
saying that even tho grain merchants of
Bussia and of the Argentine Kepublic are
better posted on the world's market than
our leading Chicago speculators. Jay
Gould is credited with saying that the
time is not far distant when the L'nited
States will have to
CONSUME ALL ITS WHEAT
at homo, and his words will prove pro
phetic unless the very foundation of our
business is changed. A fanner who
wants pianos, silk dresses, and Dolly
Dee hats for his wife and daughters can
not compete with the wheat-grower of
Bussia or Egypt, whose family lives on a
handful of rice or a slice of rye bread.
The merchant who has to use our capital
ized and extortionate American railroads
to transport his grain can not compete
with the merchants who use railroads
built or subsidized by the English Gov
ernment for the sake of developing the
country. This grain question is a terribly
and the sooner and more thoroughly it
begins to be discussed the better it will
be for everybody. There can be no ques
tion that overcapitalization, overs pec ula
tion, and overnianlpulation have been so
far the main causes of the collapse of
Wall street business. But we have en
tered now upon a new era. Stocks and
bonds will have to stand not upon the basis
of speculative prospects, but upon the basis
of the foreign demand for oursiaples. We
have Immense regions which so far pro
duce only one crop of w heat. If there
Is no export demand for it there
will be no freight for the roads.
Local tratllc, the transportation of
cattle, emigrants, timber, and ores are all
very acceptable In their way, but there Is
not enough of them to pay the fixed
charges upon the gigantic work of par
alleled roads with which this continent
has been gridironed. of course Jay
Gould understands the situation thor
oughly, and all his efforts are directed to
one point to sell out everything he has
got In the shape of securities. He does
it as fast as he can, but the work is a hard
one. He has all the time to sustain the
market and talk bullish and encourage
ingly on all sides. Hut those who think
he is a bull at heart, or that he believes in
higher prices, are very much mistaken.
The rumor that he was sustaining the
Northern I'aeiilc and Oregon Transcon
tinental stocks is absolutely without
foundation. All the dealings in these
stocks are clearly traceable to Mr. D. P.
Morgan, who, as usual,
WILL DROP THEM
as 80011 as he has made a turn of one or
two points. The return of Gould, which
was so anxiously looked for by the
manipulators, has not done them any
good so far. He has not evidently shown
his hand yet.
LOST X A C AVE,
Fourteen Days Under Lookout Moun
tain Without Food-The Rescue.
Ciia ttaxooca, Tk.nx., April 1. On St.
Patrick's Day two men from Cincinnati,
Chas. Gower and Christ. Schmidtson, en
tered the cave under Lookout Mountain,
near this city, provided with a glass laiv
tern, a bottle of coal oil, a lunch, etc.
The men had not been seen to come out
of the cave, but the gate-keeper supposed
they did so while he was at dinner
The beauties of the cavern and
its marvelous curiosities had excited their
KinlUtion to explore it. Jeff Harper,
Emerson and Calvin Leslie, recently from
Indiana, to-day entered the cave on an
exploring expedition. When about three
miles into the cavern they were startled
by deep groans inclose proximity to them.
They hastened forward and discovered
the forms of two men lying prostrate ou
a shelf of rock. The men were unable to
articulate a word, but could only give
vent in sobs to their joy at rescue. After
being removed to the outside world, the
men said that they had entered the cave
at nine o'clock on the morning of March
17. They had only a small lantern, not
Intending to go far Into the cave. After
they had proceeded about three miles,
Gower stumbled and fell, the lantern fell
from his hand into the water, and the
bottle containining the oil was broken
They had no other means of making

couia near mo trickling of water and
crawled towards it, and by lowering their
huts by means of strips torn from their
clothing, iuto the crevice, they obtained

They remained at this spot about three
nays, ami driven to desperation by hunger,
made another effort to escape their
terrible doom. About the tilth day they
threw themselves down In hopeless de
spair to meet their awful fate, and were
uuublo to move from that time until res
cued. When brought to this city the men
presented u pitiable spectacle. The or
deal seemed most severe ou Mr. Schmidt
son. At times he is delirious. Late this
evening physicians say that tho men are
doing us well as could be expected. By
careful nursing their lives may be spared,
but the chances are ugalust them. Their
entire sustenance during those fourteen
days consisted of their scanty lunch and
what water could be procured in their

Another Ex-Oonviet Turn Afrainit HU
Party and Threaten! Dire Things.
Washington, D. C, March 1. General
John McDonald, who Is here in opposition
to the promotion of Major Orville E. Bab
cock to a Lieutenant-Colonelcy, says he
has no vindictive feelings toward "Sylph,"
but feels It his duty to the public
and to his own record for con
sistency not to allow the promo
tion to be made without some
effort to prevent it. He has filed with
the Senate Military Committee a protest
against the promotion, based on the
ground that Babcock not only had guilty
knowledge of the famous whisky-ring
frauds, which was all that McDonald
w as convicted of, but that Babcock was
a beneficiary of the frauds. Having
tiled this protest General McDonald
says he shall do nothing more unless the
committee Invite him. Ho is ready to
prove his charges, and Is anxious to have
the committee give him a chance to do
so, but has not much expectation that
they will. When Babcock was tried, Mo
Douald was his friend, but now that
(irant and his private secretary have
turned him the cold shoulder iu spite
of his serving a year and a half in
the Penitentiary, as he claims, to save
ihem, he Is anxious to tell all tie knows,
and produce letters that have never yet
been made public. If Babcock is con
tinued, General McDonald says he will
take the stump next summer in opposi
tion to the Republican ticket, aud will un
bosom himself not only as to distinguished
persons who have already figured in con
nection with the whisky ring, but as to
prominent Republicans who were involved
but whose names have never been men
tioned In connection with the matter.
General McDonald says that he sees a
movement to make Grant the Republican
nominee for the Presidency already or
ganized, and a number of Grant's
old cronies have been at the Arling
ton, where he is stopping, within the past
few days. Among these are Clint Wheel
er, of New York; Davis, a national bank
er of Tennessee; ex-Senator Alexander
McDonald, of Arkansas; ex-Senator
Spencer, of Alabama, and Judge Whar
ton, of New York. He believes that men
who are ostensibly pushing Logan's In
terests are really working for Grant,
using Logan's boom as a blind or a cat's
paw, confident that delegates who are for
Logan can be turned for Grant, while del
egates for some of the other aspirants
could not be.
KILLED OV THE DUMP.
Another Murderer Placed in the Cincin
nati Jail His Crime.
Ci.vciN.VATi, O., April 1. Another mur
derer is in custody and may be expected
to be in jail in a day or so. Noah Light
foot, colored, yesterday, during a quarrel
with Hugh Tooracy, the driver of a cart
employed on the dump of the Cincinnati
Northern Railroad, struck Toomey ou the
head with a shovel, from the effects of
which Toomey died this afternuon.
LIghtfoot was arrested. It it said the act
was unprovoked by any blow or meuace
except by words. LIghtfoot was also
employed on the same dump.
